The average person flushes a toilet about 140,000 times in their lifetime. That’s a lot of water. There are a lot of super-efficient WaterSense toilets on the market, but before you start remodeling your bathroom, you might first check out a dual-flush retrofit device. They’re simple to install (watch this 8-year old kid do it in about 3 minutes), not very expensive, and some are manufactured right here in the Chicago region. So, you can support local jobs while saving local water.
Has anyone retrofitted their old tank toilet? How’s it working out?
